See TQ3076 : Stockwell tube station, Victoria Line.

In the late 1960s, London Transport appointed a collective of designers, artists and architects who designed all aspects of the Victoria Line. The distinctive designs in each platform seat recess on all of its 16 stations provided much needed colour and decoration and gave each stop its own visual identity. The results were a mixture of direct inspiration from the station name and references to historical details of the local area.

The design for Stockwell is by Abram Games LinkExternal link . The semi-abstract swan design represents the nearby pub of the same name which has been on that site for 400 years - see TQ3076 : The Swan, Clapham Road, SW9.
